My Picture Princess...

If you see the photos that I upload and the layouts I make, you will see that of my four children, only one will still pose for photos. Tina IS my picture princess, so when I saw this contest, I knew I had to enter her! PLUS...I think my Picture Princess will look adorable in this!!

Shabby Apple is a cool clothing store that also supports a charity that supports women on a global level to fight poverty.
So enjoy some photos of my Picture Princess and if you have one of your own (and even if you don't) check out Shabby Apple!

Howdy, Y'all

Tina's birthday season is on us...Mariah's usually lasts a week or two, but this year she kept it to one day!! Must be feeling old. Shortly afterward we began celebrating Tina's 7th birthday which will end sometime in the wee hours of Christmas Eve :o) She just took over my birthday, which is the day after her actual date!! How many 40 somethings do you know who ask to have their birthday dinner at Chuckee Cheese?
Anyway, the big celebration was at a horse ranch in our town. My youngest son volunteers there and the ranch mostly does Hippo Therapy. We are honored to have anything to do with the awesome folks at Rocky Top Ranch. Here are a few photos of her big day (not to be confused with the lesser days to come ;o)
the first is Tina on her horseback ride
the second is our smallest cowpoke of the day and my favorite babysitting buddy
third is our largest cowpoke of the day, Matt, wrangler extraordinaire
and finally, cowpoke wannabe (or goat trying to get discarded marshmallows!!)
